I love this Marilyn The textures, colours and lichen are great. It would make a wonderful art piece on my wall


Daniela Brocca on June 18, 2008

I agree with Palmina,Marilyn.I love minimalism. It's become abstract art.Cheers,Daniela

Palmina and Daniela, I am so glad that you like this! I know there are people who would think I was crazy for taking it.

I am pleased with it. I use a compact camera, not a DSLR, and when I use its macro setting I can't be sure what quality photo I'll get. (I also can't figure out why sometimes it's much better than others.) But I was pleased this time with how well it handled the little lichens. Cheers, Marilyn

Hallo Marilyn. You have a good eye to make so fantastic picture. Greetings from Germany, Martin.

Marilyn Whiteley on June 20, 2008

Thank you, Larry and Martin.

I like lichens, too--so I'm surprised that I didn't have any posted already! Greetings, Marilyn

lovely photo - almost three dimensional

Marilyn Whiteley on June 21, 2008

Thanks, lamplighter. I'm glad you enjoyed this!

A powerful photograph, the softness of the lichens and strength of the metal make a great combination. Regards, Anita

Marilyn Whiteley on June 23, 2008

I much appreciate your generous comment, Anita. I always wonder what people might think when I post something unusual like this! Best wishes, Marilyn

I like it too, Marilyn. Keep the art coming as well as the panoramas.

Great texture. It's modern art.

Ian and Hank, I'm very glad you enjoy the art and don't think me too weird!
